Journal Cover

I have been researching Bullet Journaling for the past few months, making it difficult for myself because I had to make it mine! This weekend I made a cover for my journal. So here is the cover and some of the process. I will share more of the inside soon.

A project that I am really happy with!
This is the paint that I used. It is from Pink Ink Designs.

The paint is great for loads of different surfaces and has a lustre sheen I used the Atlantic Blue Lustre and the Turquoise Wave Shimmer, and of course Sparkle Star.

just squeeze out some paint on to a none stick mat and mix to vary the colour depth
I wanted a messy look. I have used Craft Canvas from my craft stash.
I stencilled the Turquoise Wave through the Lisa Horton Worn Hessian Stencil.
I hope that you can see the sparkle
For the inside I cut 2 pieces of thick A4 card 22 x 22 cm
Then I scored the 2 pieces of card to create a spine
I used book tape to tape the card together over lapping the spine for strength. Then I wrapped elastic around and tied it off. I wrapped the elastic around so that I could add three sections to my journal.
I used Pink Stamps Hinge and Bracket and stamped them on a separate panel. I hand wrote the word believe and then stitched the panel on the front.

While stitching it all together I added some more elastic to use as a closer.

I stitched it together then add the zig-zag to finish it off.

My workshops will start again in February and if you have anything that you would like me to do let me know. I think that Journals and books may feature! Thanks for visiting see you soon.
